Hurricane information and help links

Hurricane Matthew is now churning toward the Southeast coastline. Forecasting models now generally project it to pass very close to South Carolina coast, but this forecast could change quickly and bring greater threats of a direct impact to our area. Please pay close attention to all advisories and any evacuation orders.

Please take precautions early. Store/secure patio and deck furniture early this week so that it’s not a last-minute scramble. Please secure garbage and recycle containers and take all items off patios and porches.

Here is a link to the National Hurricane Center for a complete list of things you should do to prepare:

Sandbags are available at the City of North Charleston Public Works Center at Remount Road and Interstate 26. There will be a limit, probably 10 bags.
